PDP Appeal Panel Clears Anti-Wike Aspirants
The screening appeal panel set up by the Peoples Democratic Party late Wednesday cleared 12 governorship aspirants in Rivers State initially disqualified by a screening panel.
A screening committee headed by a former Ambassador to Spain, Obed Wadzani, had early in the week attempted to stop 13 aspirants on the purported ground that they were not registered members of PDP.
PDP chieftains believed the disqualification was orchestrated by the immediate past minister of state for education, Chief Nyesom Wike.
The appeal panel Wednesday cleared Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, Engineer Beks Dagogo-Jack, Major Lancelot Anyanya (rtd) and Hon. Nimi Walson Jack.
The panel also cleared Chief Larry Allison, Gabriel Pidomson, Prof Don Baridan, Hon. Oseleye Dennis Ojuka, Mrs. Abietedoghu Bob-Abbey Hart, and Hon. Atamuno Atamuno.
The committee also nullified the disqualification of Dr. Sylva Opusunju, Chief Sampson Ngerebara, Hon. Tamunosisi Gogo-Jaja and Hon. Odein Ajumogobia.
Pointblanknews.com gathered that only Prince Tonye Princewill failed to make an early enough appeal to the Ibrahim Bunu committee.
One of the aspirants, Maj Lancelot Anyanya hailed the courage of the appeal panel and the party leadership for being “just and fair.”
He remarked that the appeal panel proved that ” PDP remains the party to beat in the next elections.”
